This automated platform for determining the number of microbes on microtiter plates, enabling sample throughput in the laboratory to be significantly increased.
Special nutrient media are placed in sterile 96-well microtiter plates and samples are automatically applied and diluted. Up to 8 samples can be processed per test for 1 parameter, or up to 4 for 2 parameters.
The AMP 6000 uses the Most Probable Number (MPN) statistical method. The precision of this method is comparable with that of direct plate counting, thanks to the automated preparation of a series of serial dilutions and the simultaneous examination of up to 32 replicates per dilution.
